Angela Luna is a graduate from the Parsons Class of 2016, and winner of the Womenswear Designer of the Year Award and Eyes on Talents Innovation Award. At only 22 years old, she is a social entrepreneur and designer currently in the process of establishing a humanitarian brand with a focus on using innovative design to solve global issues. Her first collection is made to assist refugees, with unisex and one-size convertible outerwear. Each jacket responds to one or more issues that a refugee faces on a daily basis, including lack of shelter and sleep, overseas journeys, too much or not enough visibility, and traveling with children.
This brand challenges the existing identity of the fashion industry, while also providing innovative and highly responsive designs to those in need. It generates social and global awareness, using an unexpected and unprecedented platform as a movement for change, and transforming it into a leading industry in philanthropic initiatives. Through widespread donations, she sees the potential for design to make a difference in the lives of the other 90%. She is dedicated to being a leading innovator in solution-based design, generating products that better the world.
